Dear Linda, Paul, Douglas, Rosie, Chris, Cris, Kay, et al.,

The ancestry of Sir Patrick de Chaworth of Kempsford, co. Gloucs. & c. (d. bef 7 July 1283) includes his paternal gg grandfather Payn or Pain 'de Mundubleil', successor to his father Patrick de Chaworth before 1155 [1]. As to this Patrick de Chaworth and his son Payn, Sanders cited:

' Ancient Charters, P.R. Soc. x, pp. 56-57. Patrick II m. Wilburga, da. of Pain de Mundubleil, and his son used his mother's surname (Dunstable Cartulary, B.H.R.S. x, pp. 304-6.' [2]

The following provides a extended (not complete) AT for Sir Patrick de Chaworth, including the seigneurs de Mondoubleau and Freteval. The connections to these seignorial families of Maine should come as no surprise, given the Chaworth origins in the same comte. These connections impact the ancestry of many individuals, including Queen Elizabeth II, most of the royalty of Europe, and many others (colonial emigrants and not), given the marriage of Sir Patrick's daughter and heiress Maud to Henry, Earl of Lancaster (d. 1345).

Any and all additional documentation, comment and criticism is welcome as always.
Cheers, John *
